Looking Glass Animal Rescue is asking for the public to help them receive anywhere from $5000 to $20,000. The Healthy Paws Rescue Race 2019 is awarding such prizes to the dog rescue whose story is the most compelling. Looking Glass Animal Rescue’s dog in the race is Cleo. Here’s Cleo’s story:
Some of us have a harder start in life than others. Cleo had it very hard. As a four month old beagle puppy, Cleo was found severely beaten, blinded and shaking. tied to a pole outside a barber shop in the Bronx, NYC. When she was found one of her eyes were swollen shut, she had cuts on her head, back and shoulders, and several internal injuries. It was determined that Cleo had a fractured nasal cavity, fractured eye socket, severe cranial trauma and a fractured jaw. Cleo’s cheekbones were symmetrically broken, meaning that she had her head slammed in a door or was hit by something very heavy on both sides of her face. As if that wasn’t enough, she had a belly full of parasites that were starving her.
Cleo’s medical bills came to more than $7,000, but Looking Glass Animal Rescue came to the rescue. Cleo’s story touched a nerve with the public, news media and animal activists. Not only was Cleo’s abuser found and arrested, LGAR was able to cover her medical expenses with donations and is now prosecuting the case in court. Cleo received the care she needed and convalesced in a foster home in Manhattan where she fully recovered and was subesequently adopted by an amazing family in New Jersey.
Help Looking Glass Animal Rescue do the same for others just like Cleo.
